1) Avoid Looking at the Camera (Unless your photographer asks you to)
Have you ever wondered why you don’t see actors looking directly into the camera in the movies? One of the reasons is to give the impression that the camera is “invisible.” So, watching a movie is like seeing all the action without being noticed. Not looking to the photographer will yield more natural-looking pictures.
2) Smile More
The moment you’ve always dreamt of has finally arrived and you may be really anxious. Sometimes it’s good to take a deep breath and relax. Many brides spend the whole time at their ceremony with a serious expression. You want beautiful photos, don’t you? You want to look gorgeous, don’t you? It’s simple. Simply smile more. Let go of all the stress and planning. Smile while you’re walking down the aisle and during the whole ceremony. Relax, enjoy the day and really try to enjoy each moment. Oh! It’s good if your husband is all smiles also, right?
3) Show Off Your Love
Do you want to know one thing that EVERY wedding photographer likes? Wedding photographers like couples who interact with each other. What instantly makes a wedding picture more appealing are couples that look at each other, that smile at each other and that show off their feelings and love. And stay together during the reception! Spend time visiting friends and family together, eat together, and of course, dance with each other!
4) Avoid Boooooooooring Formals
The formals have the potential to be the most boring pictures ever. How about we make them fun and try to create uncommon pictures? The guys can stand arm-crossed and looking each one to a different side… The bridesmaids can crack up for a really natural picture. The intention is to think outside the box and get more enjoyable photos in addition to the simple “stand in a line” shot.
5) Have Fun
The first thing to put in your head is that you must have fun on your wedding day. Forget about minor problems or insignificant details. Enjoy each moment of your day. So, laugh a lot, make funny expressions and be playful. Even if the two of you need a glass or two of champagne. Don’t forget, it’s a day to really be happy and to celebrate.

In the Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central and South American traditions, the custom can be referred to as a Quince (XV) Años, a Quinces, or a Quinceanera. The celebration traditionally begins with a religious ceremony. A reception is held in the home or a banquet hall. The festivities include food and music, and in most, a choreographed waltz or dance performed by the Quinceanera and her court.
The Quinceanera’s court can be comprised of young girls (called a Dama), young men (called Chambelán or Escorte or Galán) or a combination of both – traditionally up to 14 persons in the court, which with the Quinceanera, would total 15 young people.
The Quinceanera traditionally wears a ball gown, with her court usually dressed in gowns and tuxedos. Guests usually receive small tokens, cápias and cerámicas, to commemorate the celebration.
It is customary for the Quinceanera to receive the following gifts for her ceremony:
bracelet or ring
cross or medal or necklace
Bible or Prayer Book and Rosary
Other possible accessories for this special occasion might be:
engraved cake server set
engraved champagne glasses
XV guest registry book
XV remembrance photo album
XV gift pillows
There are many traditions throughout the celebration. At the church ceremony, an XV pillow specially decorated with the Quinceanera’s name, is placed in position for the young girl to kneel on during the ceremony. Smaller decorated pillows are also used for the presentation of the Quinceanera’s gifts. At the reception, there is always the toast to the Quinceanera, known as the brindis. With specially decorated champagne glasses for the Quinceanera, the guests are invited to offer their congratulations and best wishes. The Quinceanera Doll, symbolizing the perfection of the event and the Quinceanera, is used as both a decoration and a keepsake. In some customs, the cápias (printed ribbons with the Quinceanera’s name and date) are pinned to the doll, and the Quinceanera circulates among her guests, thanking them for their presence and presenting them with a memento taken from the doll.
The XV Años is a glorious celebration that remains a cherished and honored tradition.
SOME CREATIVE & UNIQUE IDEAS FOR YOUR SUMMER WEDDING:
1. Refreshing cocktails greeting your guests are sure to be an instant hit and a fun way to add a splash of personality to your cocktail hour. Some warm-weathered beverages that we can’t get enough of? Margaritas and scrumptious Mojitos.
2. You know what we love? Wedding sunglasses, that’s what! Pass sunnies out to all your loved ones so they can get their summer receptioning on in style.
3. Summer is the perfect, PERFECT time to infuse your day with color. Think bright hues and fun fabrics decorating the reception tables. Speaking of which, how amazing is this tablescape? We love that Ikat runner so much, we could marry it.
4. Think outside the box for wedding day details and set your sites on fruit. It runs a plenty in the summer months and let’s face it, a juicy peach used as a seating card is just that…peachy.
A portrait (IMAGES by GUSTAV – NJ Photographer) is a painting, photograph, sculpture or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality & even the mood of the person. Sometimes going outside the box is needed to evolve & change how we look & feel about a portrait.
